PDP Spokesman, Olisa Metuh Releases First Statement Since Leaving Prison
The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh has released his first statement since leaving the Kuje prison custody.
Metuh who is standing trial for allegedly collecting N400 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, without executing any contract, spent 14 days in prison before perfecting his bail conditions. Metuh in the statement said, the PDP has since overcome the initial trauma that accompanied the electoral setback of the 2015 general elections, and is now poised to regain power at the center in 2019.
Metuh made the remark at a meeting of the party’s Publicity Directorate with some visiting parliamentarians from the United Kingdom, led by Mark Field, member of Parliament and Chairman of International Office of the Conservative Party, and Colin Bloom, Director of Outreach-BCP in Abuja on Friday.
The PDP spokesman told the visitors that the PDP faced serious challenges soon after it lost in the elections, culminating in the resignation of its National Chairman, a development that created some challenges within the party, but assured that every issue would be resolved by the party leadership by next week.
